£1,500 boost for Parkstone Sports and Arts Centre

First published in News by

ONE of the Mayor of Poole’s chosen charities has been presented with a cheque for £1,500 from Dorset Education Fund.

Parkstone Sports and Arts Centre received the money from the fund, which is managed by Dorset Community Foundation, which aims to support education, learning and training for residents of all ages across the county.

Cllr Phil Eades selected the centre of one of his two chosen charities and said that as a Parkstone resident he understands how significant the need is in the area.

He said: “It was a real pleasure to receive the cheque from the Dorset Community Foundation to support Arts provision at Parkstone Sports and Arts Centre.

“The centre does incredibly good work with youths from some of Poole’s more challenging communities and this money will greatly assist them with this.”

Dorset Community Foundation is currently looking for companies and businesses who have a passion to help secure the future of the Dorset Bursary Scheme.

Why oh why is it called "Parkstone" Sports & Arts Centre when it is smack bang next to Branksome Rec., and a stone's throw from Branksome Cemetery? Because it sounds posher? If it comes to that, where is "Parkstone" anyway?

I've never heard of it and I've lived in the area for years and years. The article doesn't make it clear where this facility is.

Google says it's the youth club on the recreation ground Recreation Road, aka council provided travellers camp site in the summer months.
Somehow this didn't get a mention in the press release.I guess it got renamed Parkstone Arts whatever because no one wanted to mention recreation grounds at the moment.
